Out of the Blue

Had an Abbott and Costello moment this morning after MrsBlue emailed the sysadmin at work to get a password for the laptop she brought home for the weekend. I've changed his name and adjective to avoid a cybersecurity fail:

MrsBlue: Jim Rocks! Blue: He wrote you back?
MrsBlue: Yup. Blue: What was your password?
MrsBlue: Jim Rocks. Blue: Yeah, he got back to you fast. So what was it?
MrsBlue: Jim Rocks. Blue: Why are you...? Oh. Your password is "Jim Rocks?"
MrsBlue: How many times do you need me to tell you that? Blue: Who's on first?

Rockin' Links: Thanks Ant.
Links: Star Wars Instant Pots invite you to cook out of Chewbacca’s chest. Who's been smoking the instant pot? Thanks Neutronbeam.
Stories: US life expectancy is still on the decline. Here's why. Thanks RedEye9.
Storms threaten Thanksgiving travel across U.S., hundreds of flights canceled in Denver.
Science: 18,000-Year-Old Puppy Found Frozen In Ice Could Be ‘Oldest Confirmed Dog’ Ever. Thanks Neutronbeam.
Media: The Gold Shirt.
We Made Star Wars R-Rated. Thanks Hypothermia.
If you grab a teacher's ankle... Easy way to get kicked in the face.
Follow-up: 1 year later, mystery surrounds China’s gene-edited babies.

story number 205970 is our first locked thread,

Clicked through for the comments here expecting a chuckle over more bad password anecdotes, but then… Ooh, heated topic, tantalizing controversy, had to plug that number in and see for myself what could have been so divisive. Something going Epic Game Store exclusive? Loot boxes? Politics in video games? Aaaand it's a goddamn boilerplate press release on a game selling well. Geez, can't not laugh at how that would be the very last thing I'd have expected to even warrant a comment, much less emotions flaring up.
